My World

The Literary Universe of a Neo-Beat Throwback

let’s say your last book didn’t do really well
in the red hot poetry market and you haveCW Limited Ed Press
to feed your face and you go down to city hall
fill out the paperwork and some apparatchik
asks what you did before you applied to be
a cop and you say I was a poet
and they say not a good story
for getting this gig so you write
a nasty tale about druggies in Afghanistan
and they call you a pervie but you publish
it anyway and abandon your dream
of infiltrating the bastions of control and power
you may be a neo-beat writer
